Evzones, Syntagma, Athens

The Evzones (meaning the ‘well-belted’, a term traced to Homer’s time), are also called the Corps, Flag Guard, Palace Guard and Royal Guard, the last two vestiges of the royal regime. Their training camp is located very near to the Parliament building and one will often see them marching ceremoniously back and forth along Vas. Sofias Avenue and Irodou Attikou Street whilst changing shifts.
